“I feel most appreciated when my team is performing and functioning to its fullest.”
The enjoyment of leading her team to new solutions is a big part of what makes Stephanie thrive at Uponor.
As a design services supervisor, she oversees 15 designers who engineer plumbing systems for residential through high-rise applications in the U.S., the Caribbean, Mexico and Canada. She has quadrupled her team’s size since becoming a supervisor four years ago.
“I challenge our team to look at a task that we’ve always done and ask ourselves, ‘Is there a better way to do this?’ Then, through teamwork, we find a way to save time and/or effort.”
She credits Uponor’s highly supportive culture for her and her team’s accomplishments. “Your peers genuinely want you to be your best. Failure is not criticized. We learn from it.”
